Our Eyes Are Not Suitable for Laser! But Can We Still Say Goodbye to Glasses?

Developing technology has a great impact on eye health. At the latest point, many more alternative treatment methods can now be applied and existing treatments are being improved. Laser treatment is among these treatments that progress with technology. However, although technology has developed and new methods have emerged in laser treatment, your eye may not be suitable for laser treatment. So what do we do if our eyes are not suitable for laser? Will we have to wear glasses and contact lenses? Let’s state from the beginning that the answer is no and let’s move on to the details.

Our Eye is Not Suitable for Laser – In This Case, Phakic Intraocular Lens May Be Preferred

If your corneal thickness is not sufficient and will not remain within safe limits after the operation, then unfortunately laser is not an option for you.

However, if you still want to get rid of your glasses or contact lenses that you have to wear every day, then you can choose phakic intraocular lens treatment.

In intraocular lens treatment, which appears as a special surgical technique, special intraocular lenses prepared according to the patient are used. After the necessary measurements are made for lens selection and the numbers determined for the patient are adjusted, the surgical procedure is started.

Surgical operation is an operation that does not take too long and shows rapid recovery. The lens, which is made of materials compatible with the intraocular tissues, is placed in the eye without any intervention to your natural lens.

In other words, the lens of your eye is not removed as in cataract surgery. In addition to your natural lens, a second lens suitable for your eye is implanted so that your vision is corrected without using glasses or contact lenses.
